Boo! It’s a ghost (writer that is)!

"You don't get credit on the cover. You don't get royalties," says one ghost-writer. "It's kind of a contract deal. You write it, you give it to them, and your attachment from there financially ends. And you are not your sole master."

NPR has a print and longer audio story about ghostwriting. You can read and listen to the story here. One of the folks interviewed is my friend Jenny Siler. We met years ago when someone at Powells Books played matchmaker and said he thought we would be good friends.

He was right!
